You did the popful mail world map! I found that on line years ago but did not know who it was from. sorry about that I'll ask JonLeung to give you credit for it then, OK.

 I'll try again with BGMapper on Lady Stalker world map. Popful mail cave stage has this circle around mail and every thing out of the circle is dark. any way of getting around that. I mean is there a way to illuminate the whole screen? As for  a Lady Stalker  walk through walls
 cheat code, I'll ask my bro for help, see if he can figure it out. I hope those two games get translated some day. Would fully mapping them inspire anyone to do that?

As for dark half and energy breaker your right about that the main difficulty would be the arranging the rooms. Most of my time in landstaslker and other large games was connecting the areas together. You want to make it easy to follow but also preserve its look without clustering the map sectors with overlay, lines and labels.

would you say those games (dark half, energy breaker) are as big or bigger and more complex than landstalker?

As for BGmapper I had dificulty with it (too much of a hasal). I was wondering if it could help me with the cave stage in snes Popfulmail.
I don't know. should I continue withe popfulmail even though no one is going to translate it (same hacking difficulty as Ys5) and ladystalker, I stopped because I cant fined or make a cheat code to walk through walls.

Trop how did you get the full world map of Ys 5? what tool did you use? what emulator do you use?
Also are you sure you don't want do do Dark Half (not Dark Law) and will you finish Energy Breaker?

Dark Half looks like an interesting isometric game. I think ill take on that project.
Trop what tools do you recommend I use to map it? Any walk through walls cheat code?

While searching for the MM2 I read on line that the rom was dumped and in the MAME wip drivers and not released, but that's all hearsay.
If only some one could go to CAX and record a full video play through to put it online. Maybe I might be able to compile a map of it. Maybe, but the video quality would have to be very good.

I know Maxim. It sucks.
Even if it never gets emulated at the least a full play through video and map would be enough for some one to make a port of it.
I don't think that would compromise his word to his sources or devalue the game.
Would it?

My question is, why has it not been emulated yet?
the answer I got was this. "The reason is simple:  IP.  Access to unreleased games requires a level of trust on the part of many key sources, and maintaining that trust is important.  If something comes with a restriction, it has to be honored."
That's IP, patent, copyright laws (aka monopolies) for you.

I got my answer and its a no. It seems the guy is too busy and does not have time to do a video capture of the game.
So I guess that's that.the project is over. Sad

I got a reply from CAX. they said they would foreword my message to Scott but still no answer. It will probably take some time because they say he is very busy.

In the meantime I will update the maps for Cadash arcade.

so far no answer Sad
I just sent an email to the CAX (California Extreme "Classic Arcade Games Show") since Scott  is a member and take his machines there.
Lets see if they will get me in contact with him.
Wish me luck! Undecided

I'm thinking about doing a Marble Madness 2 map compiled from a video since there is no emulation.
I have attempted to contact Scott Evans the owner of the MM2 machines through his youtube site. So now I'm waiting for a reply.
If anyone know a better way to contact him let me know.

What do all of you think, wast of time or worth a try?

I found a youtube vid of some levels that I compiled in to 3 maps. the video was low quality.

Thanks for the recognition.

 TerraEsperZ  your right about it being  difficult to arrange. Most of my time was spent on trying to arrange as best I can without covering the art in thick lines. their probably are ways to make the map easier to follow but it wont be pretty.

I thought that I finished mapping arkanoid2 but I have been informed the game has different rounds depending on if you exit left or right and the US version is different from the Japanese and World version (1st round is different and the rounds are rearranged).
So what do I do? should I map out the left side rounds of the World ver. and stick the US ver. 1st round on it or do I map out the US separately?

I've got good new. I found someone that has those books and he has scanned all the art for me.
the maps are done and all I have to do is add the scanned images and refine the maps, so it should be finished by this month.
45  Main Boards / VGMaps Social Board / Re: landstalker sequel and books on: November 19, 2013, 06:33:15 PM
OK then. I have mapped 9 areas so I will add the art that I have now to them. I am using Gens+961 with the "walk through walls" cheat code to map it. the intros that I put up was just to get things started. I will not put them up right away, as I want to take my time to make sure that the quality is good. So to every one, be patient.
